Hi Apprentice

I worked it out :roll:
Is it possible to activate the box and then draw/drag the box shape (from left hand corner to right hand corner), rather than click the left corner and then find the right.

The problem is the measurements can be within an indicator, so the right click brings up the menu for the indicator not the box measurement !!!

Also,
The amount of candles within the box is not being displayed,
Data revealed
1. the amount of candles within the box, including those on the two vertical box lines !!

its so looking good - and right on track - great work Apprentice

1. Negative, for now this is not possible.
2. Set "Exclude outside the box candles" to NO

Ah, thats a shame it cant count the candles. The ruler in marketscope2 counts the number of candles - i was hoping the measurement box would do the same. thank you for letting me know

what about this...(from the last reply)

This functionality is simply not supported by the SDK.
At least for now.

Hi there Apprentice

I have to say I am finding this measurement box - very handy indeed.

Is it possible to make a few improvements:

1. Date and time of first candle (measured within the box)
2. Date and time of last candle

3. new layout request
With gaps between the data group
please see attached file

Would it be possible to take the count of long and short candles and display the percent of long candles and the percent of short candles. For example 8 long, 22 short candles. would be 23% long , 73% short. Thankyou!
